These last two days I cannot login on any Google Service website. I enter my email and when I press next nothing happens. The same happens with website https://quora.com, after you login, a blank screen is displayed. When I try to login to the firefox account I get the message "Cookies and local storage are required", a screenshot is attached.

I didn't touch any settings and I suspect this problem happened after the latest update, 101.0.1 (64-bit). I restarted Firefox in Safe Mode but the problem remains.

On Microsoft Edge everything works fine. Please help.

When I right click on an image in Firefox, and choose the "Copy Image" option, it never works. In fact, it hasn't worked in years for me, and that's on numerous PCs, with Windows 7 and Windows 10. I'm doing this so I can paste images into Photoshop. It looks like, instead of copying the image itself, it's just copying the image file, but this means I can't paste it into Photoshop.

Thanks for reading/helping:

I am no longer able to set Content Limit Settings to 1 (it is absent in this version of Firefox in settings). It is hogging my mem and cpu. **note: I've always followed suggestions on several Mozilla support pages. I usually do this w every update. Now it's either gone (performance) or moved. idk.

No changes in cpu and Increased Instances. ?!?!?

I have stopped at other sites asking about:config bc warning message.

What can I do safely - with various method (a) mozilla (b) about:config (c) the things i know i don't know about ;)

Attached is detailed task manager and option setting for Performance. If you need more - let me know.

Yes, update FF, restart computer.

Many thank yous, Kim, and the rest of us mere mortals

A few minutes ago, I submitted a question from my laptop which uses Firefox and Windows 10. I just noticed that your system showed that my question was coming from Chrome Windows 10 and from an IP address that matches my Ipad and NOT my laptop.

How is that possible? I didn't send my question from my ipad. I sent it from my laptop which uses Windows 10 but Firefox; and I don't have Chrome on my laptop or my ipad. So how could your system pickup Chrome when it's not in my home anywhere, and why would it detect my Ipad's IP address instead of my laptop/regular home IP address? (I have no sync between my Ipad and my laptop).

Please clear up this mystery.

Regards, Steve

Hello,

I need to export many profiles that are connected to my FFX account. these are the profiles found by going to "about:profiles". These do not restore on a new computer after signing in to a ffX account.

I have followed the steps outlined in this support article but it does not work, and I don't think applied to "about:profiles". https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles YouTube videos also do not appear to focus on importing the 'about:profiles'.

If someone knows how to do this, I would be very grateful.


Thank you Liam

This bug occurs very randomly, but it seems there have few things in common.

- Occurring on domain level, one domain at once. For example, if Youtube.com stuck, any sub address including each video page is not loaded. Other website and whole browser works fine. - Other program on same PC is not affected, too. - Which page is stop loading is completely random. It might be happen only on a popular, feature-rich site like amazon, google, but not sure. - The timing is also random. Maybe after waking PC up from sleep, but not sure. Frequency of occurrence is once every 1~5 days. - The workaround without restarting browser is 1.)switching to other container tabs(strangely), 2.)opening website on private window. Disabling all the addon manually didn't help.

Since it's randomness, I didn't have any logs about this issue.

Had a sign that I needed to update so I clicked update and it did not complete. I clicked Close Firefox and got XULRunner Error: Platform version '101.1' is not compatible with minVersion >=101.0 Max version <=101.0’ for ‘Firefox’ and can't,t get past it. I've updated for years and nothing like this has happened before. Do I need to uninstall and reinstall? if I do will I lose all my bookmarks and saved pages? Any other workarounds???

I went to settings and set firefox to open links in a NEW TAB instead of a new window, but it still opens links in a new window. I did a search on google and when I click on the link for the website to see the information it is still opening in a new window. How can I fix this so I don't have a lot of new windows. It's irritating to have to close all those stinking windows just to get back to my original window. I just want the links I click on to open in a new tab.

The photos page in OneDrive is having trouble loading most of the time. The page has the OneDrive header, and the section where the photos should show up is simply blank. Screenshot attached.

This is working fine on Google Chrome, but I would prefer not to use chrome for privacy reasons.

Can anyone help me with this?

I am using Firefox to interact with Babbel language software. I cannot get Firefox to allow me to use my standalone microphone. I tried all the Firefox recommended fixes, but I cannot make them work. I go to the "Microphone" permission setting. There is nothing listed there and it will "not" allow me to add the Babbel website? What do I need to do to allow my microphone to work with Babbel?

Computer: Apple MAC 27" 2017 model with a 3.8 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5 Processor Software: macOS Monterey Version 12.4 Babbel: Latest software application downloded May 26, 2022 Firefox: Downloaded May 30, 2022 Microphone: JOUNIVO Voice Microphone JV-601Pro (Connected to MAC via USB Connector)

Could you add a option of closing tab with <kbd>Ctrl</kbd>+<kbd>w</kbd> to the advanced preference?

Also, I realized that:

```browser.tabs.warnOnClose False``` Does this option activates warn when closing the tab? If your answer is yes, it is not working at all.

Hi I have a Shopify account and since the Firefox 99 update my Shopify shop page doesn't load any more, showing an error message. I have had to download Chrome in order to access my shop - really annoying. Have anyone been able to troubleshoot the problem? I find it really affects my ability to do business and I am feeling let down by Firefox. I am adding a screenshot of the error message. I can access my shop without any trouble on Edge or Opera browsers. Firefox is the only one having issue...
